ASME A112.20.1-2004 pdf download.Qualification of Installers of High Purity Piping Systems.
1 GENERAL 1.1 Scope This Standard establishes minimum training and per- formance criteria, identified by industry consensus, for high purity piping system installers. It applies to any individual who installs high purity piping systems, which are typically specified for critical clean applica- tions in the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, biotechnol- ogy, chemical, fiber optics, food, and dairy industries. 1.2 Levels of Qualification This Standard establishes qualification and certifica- tion requirements for Levels 1 through 5 for installers ofhighpuritypipingsystems foreitherliquid orgaseous products. The levels are as follows: (a) Level 1 qualification shall include a minimum of 10 hr of the most current OSHA General Safety Training Course or equivalent, and 6 hr of high purity safety and protocol. (b) Level 2 qualification shall include completion of Level 1 requirements and an additional 8 hr of practical training in material and component awareness, han- dling, rigging, storage, tools, and equipment specific to the high purity industry. (c) Level 3 qualification shall include completion of Level 1 and 2 requirements and an additional 16 hr of traininginsysteminstallation,material end preparation, purging, slope verification, pipe support, and basic material joining in accordance with requirements in appropriate standards referenced in para. 1.3. (d) Level 4 qualification shall include completion of Levels 1, 2, and 3 requirements and a mandatory four years of documented practical experience (recognized bythe ANSIaccreditedthird partycertifier) inthepiping industry and an additional 24 hr of training in system installation, codes and standards awareness, thermal plastic fusion, welding, brazing, and bending in accor- dance with the requirements in appropriate standards referenced in para. 1.3 and applicable manufacturer specifications. In addition, the Level 4 High Purity Installer shall be a certified metallic and/or nonmetallic welder in accordance with para. 8. (e) Level 5 qualification shall include completion of Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 requirements and an additional mandatory two years of documented practical piping 1 experience (as recognized by the ANSI accredited third party certifier) in the high purity field plus an additional 16 hr of training on testing and acceptance, pressure piping, codes and standards specific to the high purity industry, specification compliance, and documentation in accordance with the appropriate standards referenced in para. 1.3. 1.3 References The following documents form a part of this Standard to the extent specified herein.
